I need a set top box that has VGA out - I own the Philips 60PP9352 which has (for HD AV5) VGA in (15 pin female connection).


What are good boxes that support this and relative prices?


:) Thanks so much in advance

The least expensive one is the RCA DTC-100, but I had a problem with it syncing correctly on some channels on my Samsung 507W, but YMMV. My Samsung SIR-TS160 has VGA out, but some people have issues with it, read the sticky at the top of this section for more info about it, I think it is a great STB.

I have the same requirement on my Loewe...


The Sony HD200 and Zenith SAT520 (clones?) have the 15 pin, but IMHO they 2 unacceptable issues:
  1. No VCR control
  2. can't use 480i and HD outputs together.[/list=1]


    RCA says they are coming out with the DTC200. http://www.thomson.net/gb/06/r02/020808a.htm


    The DTC100 had VCR control, so I can't imagine they would delete such a feature...

Least expensive one is the Zenith HDV420. It's OTA only, so not an option for DirecTV'ers.


Cost is $400, and can be found at Circuit City.
